My Favorite Photography Hacks

One of the things that I learned these last few years as I started studying and working with professional photographers is that a lot of the creative mystery behind those amazing photographs that you see is really not that mysterious. A large part of it comes from the years and years of experience that results in a high level of mastery. The body, the mind, and the eye have become experts at working together with the scene and the camera to get it right with a minimum number of NG exposures. The other factor is that we rarely get to see or know about the ratio of NG exposures behind a good photographer's work. Typically, for creative work, the great masters aim for a ratio of under 1:10.
